~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.14 -- "N" is for ...
(1) Starts with N: "N" is for New. New plants for the backyard. We had a hard freeze in January and the Hibiscus didn't make it. The Rabbits ate our pansies long ago (link to my children's poem about that). So now we have New Vincas in the beds. Plus in the one bed showing we have Lilly of the Nile plants that Mrs. Jim brought here from our previous house in Montgomery for this one bed.
So now our backyard is looking pretty nice again. I can't wait until the natural water temp get warmer in the pool. KP has already tested it.
We also put in a new to us Palm tree to replace the one in the center of the ones beside the back fence. This one is a Silver Palm that is winter resistant, supposedly.
(2) Week's Favorite: I found this Driving cartoon on one my FaceBook friend's pages. I can't remember who, but it floats around I'm sure.
Mrs. Jim seems to be more concerned with my driving since we moved out of the country and back in to YUPs (Young Urban Professionals) land.
Most of the YUPs drive really fast and dart in and out of traffic. Not the peaceful Montgomery setting she's used to driving in.
I think that goes both ways, she may not. We both are good drivers.
(3) Blue: These Blue Sky pictures I took coming back from Washington, D.C. after our January visit with BP (blog link).
And then I found this picture I had taken, I don't remember why though, that I took it. But the Blue packaged cookies are to die for but the red ones are too sticky as the filling is some cooked up sticky-jelly-like concoction.
